Majestät der König
Anton of the House of Wettin, succeeded brother
Friedrich August I. as the Kingdom of Saxony's second reigning
sovereign. Ascending the throne in 1827 at the age of 71, his lack of
administrative experience dictated that he initiate no lasting changes
to Saxony's foreign or domestic policy. To assist him, and in response
to disturbances in the Kingdom, Anton selected his nephew Friedrich
(future King Friedrich August II.) to function as Co-Regent. These
disturbances also led to Saxony becoming a constitutional monarchy in
1831, with a bi-cameral legislature replacing the feudal states.
